FRIENDS OF CLAPHAM MANOR – SCHOOL PTA
Our parent/teacher association is called the Friends/PTA of Clapham Manor. We are a registered charity and all parents and carers of pupils at the school are automatically members and very welcome.
The Friends/ PTA raise money for the school for additional resources and activities for your children. In the past we have helped fund:
- The school’s Food Technology, Library and Thrive rooms
- Coaches for trips
- Musicians and drama lessons
- Pottery lessons
- Visitors to the school(including Reindeer!)
- Playground equipment
- Art equipment
and much, much more.
We run a variety of fund-raising events including cake sales, quiz nights, Easter hat parades, Christmas and Summer fayres, discos, Christmas tree sales, competitions, welcome events for Reception parents and social events – and we’re always looking for new ideas.
Everyone is welcome at meetings which happen at least once a term.
How You Can Get Involved
You can be involved as much or little as you like. Maybe you’d like to help listen to children read, run a stall at the Summer Fayre, make a cake, sell raffle tickets, accompany a school trip, run the bar at a quiz night, do a sponsored run or help sell Christmas trees? Perhaps you have a skill which could help the school, you would like a role on the committee, or you would like to meet and socialise with parents / carers at the school?
There’s usually Friends/ PTA news in the weekly Newsletter, which is emailed to all parents and carers on a Friday afternoon, and on the notice boards in the infant and junior playgrounds. You can also join us on our Facebook page: Click here.
Get involved. It’s fun, friendly and helps your child at Clapham Manor. We’d love to hear from you and look forward to meeting you.
